Check the temp on the gauge when it does this, if the car heats up it shuts of on its on. I had a similar problem and it ended up being a defective Crankshaft Position Sensor (part is like $100). Apparently this is a common problem. I did the work myself, 28 year old woman with minimal experience.

Beside the ECM, there is an electronic device called immobilizer designed to turn off the pump to stop engine in case of a car collision preventing fire. When it is bad, it give a wrong signal when engine is hot or cold. Your case is at engine hot. Any shop with diagnostic tools or dealer can turn off this feature then you are OK. If they don't want to do that (safety violation) then you have to replace it. Before replace it, you can ask them just to temporally turn off to confirm the problem before a replacement.

If your Mercedes is a diesel, you may have a fungus growing in your fuel system. The tank gets coated with the fungus and plugs up everything. Try replacing your fuel filter. You may need to replace it several times after you get it running. If it is a diesel and this is the problem, you may want to drop and clean the tank.

It is believed that the Tomtom lead, which was permanently plugged in to the cigarette lighter, has caused the battery to drain, when the engine is not running. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
